Pros

Good people, great vacation/pto policies; very flexible in work schedules, room for career advancement, tuition remibursement for college. Pension plan.

Cons

Healthcare benefits are not great. I feel they should be much better for the employees of such a well recognized health care system. Merit/cost of living increases could be better. There should be more and better employee recognition events/programs. I also feel that CIGNA did a disservice to many of it's employees when it change it's infracturre to career banding. By lumping job title into bands/families that don't really apply, it enabled CIGNA essentially to underpay some of its employees and prevent them from receiving the appropriate merit increases each year due to some people being at or over the "median" salary for the band the employee was forced into. That caused a lot of dissastification in the company.

Advice to Management

Make sure to give more respect and take better care of the foundation of your business as it is the foundation that holds the structure together. Don't forget the "little people".

    Pros

    Money - comp is relatively good.

    Cons

    Very little upward mobility, therefore people become very cutthroat and try to keep others down rather than focusing on doing good work. Also, the company's business has contracted or stagnated since 2002 (company is about half the size it was in 2002), so there is the constant spectre of layoffs and downsizing, but it's never planned strategically. Death by a Thousand Cuts, I call it.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about growth! All CIGNA has done for years is cut costs while the business has shrunk by almost 50% in 5 years.

    Pros

    The opportunities to advance within CIGNA are nearly limitless, though they may sometimes require relocation depending on the size of your office. Management is eager to promote those employees who have potential.

    Cons

    The "rewards-for-performance" compensation system can result in some pretty measly merit and promotion raises. Every position has a market value that is openly discussed with employees. However, performance vs. market value never seems to line up the way one would think it should. Ratings during the annual review must be given on a bell curve, so there will always have to be someone with a "needs improvement" rating, regardless of whether anyone on the team actually deserves that rating.

    Advice to Management

    If our pricing stinks, we're not going to be terribly successful at selling anything.
